Through Deaf Eyes

Video

This documentary explores 200 years of deaf life in America.

This documentary explores 200 years of deaf life in America. The film presents the shared experiences of American history - family life, education, work, sports and technology - from the perspective of deaf citizens. Interviewees include former Gallaudet University President I. King Jordan and actors Marlee Matlin and Bernard Bragg. At the film's heart are six artistic works by deaf media artists and filmmakers. Poignant, sometimes humorous, these films draw on the media artists' own lives and are woven throughout the documentary. But the core of the film remains the larger story of deaf life in America - a story of conflicts, prejudice and affirmation that reaches the heart of what it means to be human.
